“What is reality?” Builders Club creates a short film about elusive artist Robert Rushkin. According to the directors:
We met Robert a year ago. It was during a hike deep in the woods, where he did some research for his new installation. After introducing each other, we were really surprised that so little is known about him. Gladly, he gave us access to his archives. It became obvious to us to make a film about him.”
Who is Robert Rushkin?
Rushkin has been a massively prolific artist for 60 years, but little is known about him. Rushkin has collaborated on works with Andy Warhol and Gerhard Richter, and his work has been exhibited in MoMA of New York (Objective Reality, 2014), Tate Modern (The Fallus, 2001), Palais de Tokyo in Paris (Art Fiction Techno Sex, 2013), Guggenheim New York (The Burger, 1999), and Saatchi Gallery of London (with Gerhard Richter in 1984). In the short film, Robert thinks about reality, his work and meaning. Artist Website.
